Terre Bleu owners Ian and Isabelle Baird fell in love with a lavender farm while vacationing in Quebec. In 2011 the Bairds planted their first 10,000 lavender plants. After years of careful planning and cultivation the farm opened to the visiting public in 2014.
Today, the family run business is the largest lavender farm in Ontario and is home to over 50,000 lavender plants and many other herbs and flowers spread over 160 acres. Terre Bleu welcomes tens of thousands of visitors every summer to share how sustainable and organic farming can have a positive impact on the world in which we live.
You can visit their farm store, essential oil distillery, honey house, equestrian ring, herb bar and stroll through their 200 year old cedar forest. You can also take a break at their Ruins Cafe, a beautiful outdoor terrace situated in the remains of a 100 year old barn surrounded by original stone walls and colourful gardens. There’s lots to explore!
